At 1:28 in this clip of the Conan show, Conan O'Brien says something I can't understand. I believe listening comprehension is a crucial part of learning the English language, but I'm just not picking up what's said there.

What does Conan O'Brien say at that time?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's asking for a general transcription, rather than an explanation of something about an attempted transcription, specific ways to transcribe better, or anything else that other learners can search for. Jun 17, 2018 at 20:19
  • @NathanTuggy While I'm split on if such questions should be off-topic (mostly because it's unclear to me that it will be helpful to future visitors, particularly because it requires an off-site resource to be complete), the on-topic page says that a question which is about any "other practical problems you encounter or face while learning English" is on-topic and neither that page, nor the don't ask page exclude questions such as this one. Thus, IMO, it's currently on-topic.

At that time Conan O'Brien says:

Little shout-out to Justin: How's Satan? … Yeah. That's great.

A "shout-out" is normally a "a message of congratulation, support, or appreciation." Conan's statement is humorous because it is a backhanded way of implying that Justin knows Satan well enough to be able to say how Satan is doing (i.e. that Justin is in league with, or has a deal with, Satan).

  • In this case, the connection is: Conan's guest is singer-songwriter Bo Burnham. The music video for Burnham's satirical song "Repeat Stuff" features Burnham as a Justin Bieber parody who participates in Satanic rituals designed to get little girls to buy his records.
